Download CV

Julian Charrière’s work is about the representation and perception of nature, and the traces and limits of human influence. His artistic approach reflects both historical and contemporary perspectives; he plays with the iconographies of landscape and the force of nature, as well as with our longing for authenticity and connection to nature. Charrière brings past, present and future into dialogue and makes different temporalities visible by allowing geological and human timescales to collide. Engaging with issues such as the effects of global warming or the treatment of the earth’s resources, his work addresses central discourses of the present.
